I told you all I would show you my recipe for the Leek Rice I make….I am warning you though, you PROBABLY won’t like this!! Seriously, unless your weird like me or are pregnant and crave strange things. ;-) But I figured I’d at least let you in on the funky things I crave being pregnant.
“PIN IT” If you like it (by clicking the red button below)…
Here we go….
1 Leek (chopped) – this is sorta a kind of onion in my opinion and you only use the long stem part of it.
Tahini – found at the health food store, it tastes a lot like peanut butter and is good for ya!
Rice (I use 2-3 cups of uncooked rice)
Plain Greek Yogurt
1 – You need to soak the leek stems in a bowl of water because these have a TON of dirt in them and this is the best way to get the dirt out of all the crevices…I was going to post a picture of the dirtiness inside my leek but I didn’t want to gross you all out….this is a recipe for a meal after all.
2 – Finely chop the leek and put in your rice cooker over the rice and water.
3 - After you cook the rice with the leeks, it will look like the above picture. Add as much Tahini (peanut butter taste) and greek yogurt as you’d like!
*I also LOVE to add a lot of parmesan cheese to this! Just the kind in the bottle.
On a side note – I am having something that you may think sounds better….grilled steak and a sweet potato! Here’s a fun tip though….In my sweet potato I use Plain Greek Yogurt instead of Sour cream and guess what?! It’s healthier for ya and tastes the same!
